This piece certainly does not lack energy. In 3/8 time, it has a bouncy, lilting character. Students must carefully observe all of the rests in each hand so that the melodic line can flow clearly. Voicing to the top of each third is also crucial. Young pianists may have difficulty determining how to shape each phrase and may need a teacher’s assistance.
